For many of us at Peters Place RVA, we hardly began our healing by just putting down the drink or the drug. We believe healthcare, including medical resources, is essential in developing and maintaining long-term recovery. We recognize evidence-based frameworks such as harm reduction. Folx may use these practices (e.g. medicated assisted treatment) under the direct supervision of a medical professional. We also encourage holistic care that meets biological, mental, social, and spiritual needs. For all of our residents, but especially individuals freshly on their recovery journey, we recommend medical care such as intensive outpatient services, detox, and visits to primary care providers. We have community partners and networks prepared to support folx without medical insurance.
